    IMG_20180404_091533.jpg can anyone tell me what that white and yellow thing on the roosters comb is?
    The rooster is a bantam mixed breed,
    And the rooster is 6 months old

    It looks like there was a peck wound or injury from something that is healing. They usually look black at first, then turn those colors over a few weeks.

    Here's a closer picture and it's been there for about 2 months, I haven't seen it heal, and the other side of the comb is slowly turning white, IMG_20180404_092206.jpg

    I really think it is still an injury. You can apply some coconut or castor oil to it once a day if you wish, and those may help if it would be something other than a healing scab. Dry skin looks white. I doubt that it is favus, a white chaulky fungus that can be treated with clotrimazole or mycostatin cream, but if you suspect fungus, you can try one of those.
